What Volunteers Do:
Volunteers at the Westfield Farmers Market are crucial in ensuring its success. We are looking for individuals passionate about supporting local food artisans who enjoy interacting with customers. As a volunteer, you can help people navigate the market, answer questions, and provide assistance with a friendly smile.
While volunteering, you may also be involved in physical tasks, such as lifting up to 20 pounds and walking short distances. It's important to note that our market operates rain or shine, so being comfortable spending time outdoors in various weather conditions is necessary. Each market volunteer shift is 3.5 hours, which allows us to maintain a consistent and reliable presence throughout the event.
